If the Timberwolves win tonight, go ahead and call it “Miracle on First Avenue.”

The Miami Heat are in town, looking for a 15th-straight victory.

The Wolves who have lost five straight -- and 21 of 25 -- are likely to be without the injured Nikola Pekovic and Andre Kirilenko again.

Point guard Ricky Rubio says all you can do is “play the players we have … and fight until the end.”

They'll have to.

Here's the projected lineup for Minnesota: Rubio, Luke Ridnour, Mickael Gelabale, Derrick Williams and Greg Stiemsma. Miami? They'll go with Mario Chalmers, Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Udonis Haslem and Chris Bosh.

Earlier this season, Miami topped Minnesota, 103-92, at American Airlines Arena. In that game, the Wolves were led by Kirilenko's 22 points while Pekovic added 18 points and 12 rebounds.
